Abstract
China is one of the countries which are suffering the most serious debris flows. The social life and economy in the mountain area are suffering a lot from them. With the frequency of debris flow increases in recent years, the threat to human life and property is bigger and bigger. Especially the seismic areas have suffered serious debris flows after the "5.12" Wenchuan Earthquake,. And the disasters may last for decades. With the promulgation of "To speed up the development of modern insurance services"in 2014, the demands for debris flow insurance put forward , and the requirements for accuracy and scientificalness of debris flow hazard assessment is higher. So debris flow hazard assessment of is more important and urgent now. This paper reviews the development history of debris flow and the research status of debris flow hazard assessment in China. And introduce three kinds of hazard assessment methods in China: based on the statistical evaluation, numerical simulation and 3S technology. Then discuss the possible development trend of hazard assessment of debris flow.
